OLDIES SUNDAY: Clint Eastwood X General Saint – Another One Bites The Dust (1981)


Hello everyone! We hope you’re staying safe out there. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Dancehall Recording Artists Clint Eastwood and General Saint with their track, “Another One Bites The Dust“! Released in 1981, the track was produced by Henry “Junjo” Lawes, and it was distributed through Greensleeves Records. The duo display great synergy here with their chanting, commanding presence, and wordplay that borrowed from various sayings and proverbs like “Kiss kitty K.Y. you minus plus…“, “You bend down Guava, you lick up syrup“, “Nothing done before its time“, and “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust…“. (Ask your Grandparents for meaning of these sayings. – Editor)

“Another One Bites The Dust”, which was inspired by the track of the same name by British Band Queen, was featured on Clint Eastwood and General Saint’s 1981 album, “Two Bad D.J.“. The track became a memorable one for them, and gives nowadays listeners a feel of a time when Dancehall was growing up. Today’s selection was inspired by news of the Saharan Dust making its way around the world, and Jamaica getting a fair share of it this week. With word that a second wave is near, we urge everyone to stay masked up just the same, and prevent getting sick from it, and also the Coronavirus.

BLACK LIVES STILL MATTER
